Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
Tucked into an unpromising concrete and glass edifice, this pleasingly minimal room just off the Strand is one of the city’s better bets – a “great little authentic Japanese restaurant”, which draws fans from across the area.
The “best Japanese” in the city occupies a “modern office complex, off the business centre”; “beautifully presented food is prepared using the freshest of ingredients”, notably the “seriously good sashimi”.
Etsu Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Exceptionally good Japanese food with all the old favourites available. As good as anything in London, and half the price."
"In an office block near the docks, if this restaurant really deserved its top scores for food and service last time, which I doubt - same as Le Gavroche...? - it has gone sharply downhill. Standard dishes done to an undistinguished level at mid-range prices are served by friendly mainly local staff."
